Tan without the wrinkles!

Tan without the wrinkles!

Formulating a sunscreen is becoming an art!
We knew UVA made you age, UVB made you burn, now we are hearing more and more about Infra Red and the visible light...
Recent studies show that IR are responsible for solar elastosis, in other words wrinkles and sagging, and the visible light, precisely the blue light is responsible for sunspots and dehydration.
French Professor Passeron, studies skin pigmentation and he recently published a study on the pigmenting effects of the visible blue light, the results show that the melanin production is different than the one from UVB exposure, the color is more intense and more stubborn.

The solar spectrum is made of  51 % Infra-Reds,  2% UV and 47 % visible light.


A good sunscreen should have full UV spectrum sunscreen, anti-free radical actives (vitamin E, vitamin C, carotene), actives that prevent inflammation and DNA damage. But also actives to prevent IR to heat the skin (mineral sunscreen such as Titanium Dioxide & zinc Oxide) and finally blue light stoppers (Iron oxide fond in tinted SPF).
